Hello! How’s everyone doing this week? Are you getting excited about the holidays yet? My anticipation is growing because my brother will be coming home for a visit! This coming weekend is also going to be Christmas and birthday party crazy. We’ve got two Christmas parties on Saturday, our Christmas church service on Sunday as well as an open house at our place and then my Dad’s birthday party Sunday evening! Whew! At least I’ve got our week’s menu planned to make that go smoothly!

Monday: BBQ Pork Chops, roasted potatoes, carrots, broccoli
Tuesday: Cream Cheese Chicken in the crock pot, rice, salad
Wednesday: Garden Chowder
Thursday: Beef Burritos…anyone have a great recipe?
Friday: Leftovers or out with a gift certificate we have

I’ve been doing a bit of Christmas baking as well. Here are some of the recipes I’m using!

Whipped Shortbread
Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
Homemade marshmallows
Ginger Crinkles
